About This Report


This little pig stayed home

High oil and feed prices and internal and external competition have been hampering the industry over the past five years. Unfortunately, even with economic recovery on the horizon, the industry will continue to decline. Corn's strong ties to oil and the volatility that can arise from such a link will continue to keep industry firms chasing profit instead of making it. Also, competition from other meat sources in light of perceived health issues will hinder pork's popularity.

Establishments in this industry farm hogs and pigs in operations that include breeding, farrowing, weaning and raising feeder pigs or market-size hogs. The term 'pig' usually refers to the domestic mammal when it is young or small, while 'hog' is the name typically given to domesticated pigs that weigh more than 120 pounds. While hog feedlots are included in the industry, the transportation of the livestock is excluded.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
